The Ladbrokes Life: What sort of punter are you?

| 30.05.2014

Here at Ladbrokes we know what makes gamblers tick and we also know that not everyone has the same approach.

From those who pick a horse for its name to those who are convinced there’ll be under 2.5 goals in the AFC Cup match between Home United and the Churchill Brothers because their research says so – Ladbrokes caters to all.

We believe that the tactics of those that form part of the Ladbrokes Life can be boiled down to five key traits:

Which of these best describes you?

The Gut Truster

You laugh in the face of form guides because you already know the outcome. You feel it in your gut and you gut has served you well in the past.

There’s no need to spend countless hours researching stats because when you know, you know. You know?

The Believer

You’re not in this game to turn £10 into £12.50 on a sure thing. Where’s the fun in that?

That’s a tap in from two yards out while the keeper’s flat on his face type of bet. No. You’re more likely to have a worldy punt and take home the big bucks – if you believe in it it’ll happen!

Generous John

You win some, you lose some but when you win everyone wins.

You’re the type of guy that shares the wealth so when Rooney scores first and England win 3-1 your winnings mean the first pint is on you.

Mr Brightside

Your 11-game acca was coming in until that last-minute strike from Accrington’s late substitute.

So what, you’d have only have spent that £5 on chicken and chips anyway. And you’ll win the next one right?

The Professor

Gambling’s not gambling when you hold all the answers. Whether it’s the number of corners, total red cards at the World Cup or a sure thing in the 15:20 on the all-weather at Southwell you leave nothing to chance.

Perfect planning prevents poor performance and that’s what gives you the edge.

So which of these best sums you up?
